One Pan Wonders: French Onion Pinwheels

April 5, 2010

Today I’m going to start a new feature called One Pan Wonders.  This category will highlight recipes that require–you guessed it–only one bowl, pot or pan.

French Onion Pinwheels

1 package frozen puff pastry, thawed according to package and unrolled

4 green onions, thinly sliced (just the green parts)

2 oz fresh green spinach, chopped (a small chop is best)

4 oz Tofutti cream cheese (French Onion flavor)

Oil for spraying

Pre-heat oven to 375.  Unroll puff pastry on a cutting board or lightly floured countertop.  Spread cream cheese over the entire piece of dough, spreading evenly.  Mix onions and spinach together, and spread over top of dough.  Roll up dough (lengthwise if you want many pinwheels, widthwise if you want big pinwheels).  Use a serrated knife to slice to desired thickness.  Lay pinwheels flat on a lightly greased cookie sheet and spray lightly with olive or vegetable oil.  Bake 15 minutes, flip, and cook another 5-10 minutes until golden.

Breakfast Bites

March 25, 2010

Craving a Danish but just don’t have the energy to make frosting and cream cheese filling?  These dandy little treats will satisfy without taking all morning.  Best part?  They only take one pan!

Breakfast Bites

1 package refrigerated crescent roll dough

1/4 cup apricot preserves (I used Bonne Maman)

sprinklings of cinnamon sugar, cardamom, and ginger

3 Tb unsweetened dried coconut

slivered almonds, optional

Butter-flavored spray or vegetable oil spray

Preheat oven to 375 and lightly spray a cookie sheet.  Separate crescent roll dough into the preformed triangles.  Roll each triangle into a ball and mush it, then flatten it into a disk shape about 1/4″ thick (thinner is fine).  Spread fruit preserves over each disk.  Sprinkle with cardamom (go easy!), ginger, and cinnamon-sugar.  Sprinkle coconut (and slivered almonds, if using) on top.  Bake until golden and puffy.  Serve warm with tea, milk, or coffee!
